What is Perspex and how does it differ from acrylic?
Perspex is a trademarked brand of acrylic. You may also be familiar with several other acrylic or PMMA brand names, including Plexiglass, Acrylite and Lucite.
A key part of our expertise is to help you choose the right material for your project. Polycarbonate, HDPE, PVC, seaboard, and Celuka are just a few of the other materials we can usually cut for you on the spot.
Performance properties of Perspex and acrylic sheets
Acrylic remains a superior and popular choice for an array of fabrication projects because of the following qualities:
Perspex is a durable material that can withstand exposure to ultraviolet and fluorescent light without darkening or deteriorating. It is easy to clean with soap and water.
Moldable and machinable
Perspex and acrylic sheets are flexible and easily manipulated. From laser-cutting, etching, engraving, thermoforming, molding and CNC-router-cutting, there isn’t much you can’t do with acrylic!
Weather and chemical resistant
Acrylic is renowned for its durability, UV resistance and weatherability in a wide range of conditions. From boating and marine panels, to outdoor signage and pool fencing, Perspex is an ideal option for an array of outdoor applications.
Lightweight yet strong
Perspex acrylic warrants itself as an ideal alternative to glass as it is both lighter and more impact-proof. This makes it a great choice for marine windows, underwater pool windows, windshields and more.
Optical quality and light transmission
With excellent visibility and UV resistance, clear acrylic rivals glass in its clarity and is an ideal material for lightboxes, displays, signs and windows.
Acrylic not only comes in a wide range of colours, finishes, sizes and thicknesses - it also is a popular choice for an array of commercial and domestic applications.
